Mainboard Data Bus Speed. I was l84400 for dinner, and when I got back it was really really hot, screen black, nothing worked. Modem The modem is unsupported under Linux. If you’re into 3D games and like the idea of getting a super-portable laptop game machine, you’ll be acutely aware that most laptop video adapters are miserably slow for anything but 2D graphics.

My asud, same hardware as described, has the S2 button working: Which doubles as the modem socket – you can plug both RJ phone line and RJ network connectors into it, but not both at once. If you want to use the Suspend to Disk feature see Power Management you have to set up a hibernation partition before installing Linux.

Their battery life is lousy. L88400 laptop kindly provided by Achieva Technology. The SpeedStep feature by itself doesn’t have a huge impact on battery life.


The Phoenix BIOS has the ability to suspend the system, save the state of the entire laptop to disk before shutting down the computer. Since this is a review machine, though, it may or may not be representative of the average panel quality.

Please see the section on Power Management. That’s all the graphics adapter can display; the CPU’s fast zsus to push the polygons more rapidly, but you just can’t get any more frames per second onto the screen in that resolution.

The ass your typical short-throw laptop jobbie, with full-sized keys but less than great keyfeel. The L doesn’t seem to be too bothered about running the CPU full blast with its lid closed – obstructing the intake for the fan. Nvidia’s got a new mobile chipset, the GeForce2 Goand ATI’s promised a mobile version of their Radeon as well; either of these chipsets should give future laptops solid by 3D performance.

Graphics Controller Form Factor. I have personally installed Debian potato 2.

Review: Asus L laptop computer

I usually run my laptop on AC power most of the time, so I asks the battery sparingly. You don’t get a carry-bag with the L, just a padded Velcro-flap slipcase.
